Re: Bell Green Urban Renewal Plan

JGD, I don't see this as a ward dispute although I would dispute the ward boundaries as the only boundaries that matter for an issue as big as Bell Green or Forest Hill town centre. I and the Forest Hill Society are happy to lend our support to groups in neighbouring areas where there is common inte...

Re: Bell Green - A New Plan, January 2019

Hello again, JGD. Saturday's meeting was simply a chance for people to discuss possible ideas to get public consultation started. Nothing has been pre-determined, everything is up for discussion, and the whole local community will have multiple opportunities to contribute. To enable that, however, ...

You flatter me. The only similarity between my house and a ski lodge is being perched on the top of a mountain.

Most of my furniture comes from Ikea so I can never quite understand why people dislike it so much (other than the shopping experience).

Re: New Aldi approved in Bell Green

I'm not sure what 'the process' would be - I don't think it would be the planning process unless you were painting on residential buildings or using illumination. Getting funding from council sources might be a different matter if they don't like your design but other sources of funding can always b...

Trains will run according to the night service which terminates at New Cross Gate. I have written to Len Duvall and Ellie Reeve, both of whom have agreed to wr...
